I would not give them a dime until they give you an itemized estimate and a complete, written diagnosis. I would also get another price from an independent shop.

IF only the check engine light came on, what was the code? is the thing running ok?? also, if there was a catastrophic engine failure and you have to foot the bill, there are lots of options better than a dealer.

Do you have an extended warranty on the Tahoe?

I'm so upset that I'm not sure if is worth to fix it , I don't have the money and I still own over $16000 to the bank , I was thinking to trade in , the dealer offer me $15000 for the Tahoe to cover some of the debt if I take a new chevrolet from them, with all this I don't feel like putting my money in another Chevrolet and start all over again . The car was ruining good , it was the first time I have the engine light on, I called GM they offer to put $ 4200 to fix it but has to be in that dealer, If I take it out I would have to make a new claim and start all over again to see if they can support me with some money . I don't have the extended warranty

Make them tell you exactly what is wrong. Does the car run and drive?

10500 bucks for an engine? Are they crazy? Get them to itemize those kind of costs. Even if you do take another vehicle you will be upside down in debt on the new rig, and forget going hybrid, for the savings in fuel it will tank a very long time for you actually realize any of it. I have had very good luck with all of my Chevys I have had through the years all but one easily made 200K miles.

The first mistake was buying a hybrid- did you feel cool for awhile? well, you will pay for it now- they are not meant to be rebuilt- how ecological is a mountain full of junk hybrids-
